Friendly staff. The falafel is vegan, but the pita bread is not. Best tahini! Cheap prices.

Pros: cheap , good tahini , vegan falafel
Cons: pita is not vegan , vegan items not labeled on menu

Excellent, inexpensive, close to I-65

We stopped here while travelling and will do so again.

As soon as we sat down, we were given four samples and some pita bread. Hummus, baba gannoug, Arabian salad and a tomato soup. The hummus was excellent, and the others were good too.

We ordered falafel sandwiches, which were under $6 apiece. They were excellent, and came with an excellent, thick lentil soup. I tried a falafel sandwich with fried cauliflower, which is now one of my favorite foods.

The staff were very nice. The walls are decorated in tasteful scenes of classic Middle Eastern architecture.

This restaurant is convenient to travellers. It's three miles off I-65 on an access road to Hwy 030 aka W. 81st Ave. aka Lincoln Highway.

Pros: Tasty food, Cheap prices, Atmosphere

Consistently Great Food

Posted on 08 / 14 / 2011

I've been coming here for years. The quality of the food is always high. Front counter staff are friendly and efficient. I appreciate that they have so many specially marked veg*n options on the menu.

When you first walk in, you'll notice that the front part of the space is a small store featuring all manner of middle eastern groceries. They sell fabulous walnut and pistacio baklava that they import from a bakery in Chicago's north suburbs. Also specialty candies from the middle east and all kinds of staples like hummos, bags of pine nuts, etc.

The area where the place could use improvement is its cleanliness. When you first open the front door, it's greasy. Gross. And not a good first impression. The little plastic seat in the waiting area seems to always have bugs lodged in the crevice. And the place sometimes smells like smoke.
